The Different Types of Mouthwash

Posted .

Have you ever wondered about the different kinds of mouthwash? If so, we have exciting news for you! Our team here at Dentistry For Today in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, can help you navigate through the different mouthwashes, so you can pick the right one for you.

Did you know, there are several different options to choose from when it comes to mouthwash? The trick then becomes, how do you know which one to pick? When it comes to answering this question, know there are two different kinds of mouthwash: therapeutic and cosmetic.

Therapeutic mouthwashes are designed with unique ingredients that kill bacteria and reduce plaque, gum disease, cavities, and bad breath problems. Therapeutic mouthwashes contain fluoride, which helps reduce and prevent tooth decay in your smile. Cosmetic mouthwashes can temporarily help to reduce bad breath in your mouth. They usually have flavor options but are not capable of fighting off cavities or gum disease.

Now that you know the difference between the types of mouthwash at the store, you can choose from, you can figure out which mouthwash is right for your unique needs. If you continue to experience bad breath or cavities, please call 502-839-6828 to make an appointment with Dr. Robin Cropper. Our friendly and caring staff is always happy to take your call and help in any way we can.
